Thanks once again for the links Marilynn.

I'm not sure if you've ever mentioned this one, but I am finding a lot of useful information on it.

I have started up my own Blog called "Write First Time". I've been waiting for an OK by author Denise Rossetti before I publish the rest of her interview. Then I'm going to post the rest of the alphabet.
